Birthday Layout

MADI'S 6th Birthday

Pics from my nieces birthday party a few years ago.  Had such a great time with all the kids and the water balloons.  This is my first Birthday Layout and had a great time using multiple photos and going outside my normal box.  Oh and so LOVE the CUP CAKES!


I just love spring!  Each day I drive to work I get to see all the new baby cows, horses and other animals that have just been born....
Listening to the sound of the birds in my front yard as i enjoy my morning coffee,
Spring Rain,
New life to the flowers and trees,
warmth of the sun,
and laying out by the pond and watching the clouds go by and trying to find shapes like we did as children.
